Rita Ora looks like she's taken a bit of 'back to school' hair inspiration in her latest Instagram selfie!

And after seeing Lily Allen rocking kiss curls and pigtails just last month, it's obvious the 'schoolgirl chic' trend is catching...

After swapping super-short hair for glamorous, long extensions at the Oscars last weekend (2 March), Rita has clearly got a taste for the versatility of having long locks.

And we rather like these cute, reverse French braids.

We've already seen Cameron Diaz, TOWIE's Sam Faiers and Nicole Scherzinger working similar looks, but Rita's might be our favourite so far.

Yeah, yeah, we know we can't see her whole look, but with Rita's gorgeous baby face, we can totally picture how fabulous it looks on her.

The 'Shine Ya Light' singer is a bit of a plait fan, having worn fishtail braids and a side-sweeping French plait to red carpet events.

And, while she's been known to make the rather odd fashion choice here and there, it seems Rita can do no wrong when it comes to her hair and beauty.

Reverse French plaits aren't the easiest to master, but if you can do a French plait, you can do these. You just braid each section of your plait UNDER, rather than OVER the last to ensure the plait sits up on top of your head, rather than being sunken in to your hair.

Still don't get it? Then get a mate to try it for you – it's much easier to do it on someone else than attempt it on yourself!
